Rabbi Abraham Pinter is a prominent member of the Stamford Hill orthodox Jewish community [ Listed as having several positions within the Union of Orthodox Hebrew Congregations in their calendar Calendar 2008/2009] . He is Principal of the Yesoday Hatorah School.

8th Most Influential British Jew

In 2008 he was listed by the Jewish Chronicle as the 8th most influential British Jew. The JC writes: "Rabbi Avraham Pinter: 8 (New) A major omission from last year’s list, our panel agreed, Rabbi Pinter is known and admired as a bridge between the strictly Orthodox and the wider Jewish and general community. An astute and media-friendly educator and political operator, he is the first port of call for government departments, councils and journalists seeking the Charedi viewpoint. As principal of the Yesodey Hatorah schools in Stamford Hill, the former Hackney Labour councillor fought a difficult but ultimately victorious battle to win state aid for Yesodey Hatorah senior girls’ school. Evidence of Rabbi Pinter’s pulling power was that Tony Blair addressed the formal opening of the school’s £14 million campus in 2006 — with Lord Levy, Gerald Ronson and Richard Desmond among his audience. He also represents Charedi interests on the London Jewish Forum." [http://www.thejc.com/articles/the-jc-power-100-part-3-3?q=node/932 The JC 100 list]
